How to get a FSOT (For Sale or Trade Badge)

######PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED WITHIN 3 DAYS#####

How to get a FSOT (For Sale or Trade Badge)

How to get a FSOT (For Sale or Trade Badge)We have simplified the process for being able to sell and create ISO (in search of) on Diaperswappers.

The new requirements are:

1. Be a member for longer than 30 days
2. Have at least 30 posts*

*We encourage you to post in all areas of the forum before applying. Applications from members with excessive posts in FSOT threads and few other areas of the forum will be delayed.

Once you have met those requirements you can log into your account you can request a badge by:

1. Logging into your account on a computer and going to User CP (left side of screen.)


2. Once in User CP scroll down to Group Memberships and request to join group. If you do not see an option to join it means you have not met the above two requirements.

*The application approval process is not immediate. It may take a day or several depending on when the application is received. You will get an email notifying you if you have been approved or if further information is needed.

The process is now simpler but it also gives more responsibility to both the seller and buyer.

How to protect yourself:

As a Buyer
-Familiarize yourself with Paypal’s Buyer Protection policy.
-Check seller’s itrader feedback.
-Ask questions, ask for pictures and keep all correspondence. Make sure the terms of the purchase are clear to both of you.
-Do research on the items you plan to purchase.
-Pay for items only using the “Goods” options.

As a Seller
-Familiarize yourself with Paypal’s Seller Protection policy.
-Check buyer’s itrader feedback.
-Check buyer’s post history.
-Request and verify that the buyer has a verified paypal account. A verified account has additional personal information on file with paypal to confirm their identity.

We encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with how to buy and sell here by reading detailed information found here.

Re: How to get a FSOT (For Sale or Trade Badge)

I just removed my own badge and reapplied. I went into my user cp and then group memberships. I scrolled down the available groups (shown in my screenshot) and selected FSOT seller and asked to join and I was asked some information. The screen you took a pic of did not appear at any time.

I just had another member confirm that going through the user cp method worked after getting the API error in the old badge application. We just switched over recently and are in the process of removing mention of the old method.

The only way to apply now is through group memberships.

Re: How to get a FSOT (For Sale or Trade Badge)

I often get asked why we have these selling guidelines. Here are a few of the reasons:

We are a community first and we hope spending some time here posting will encourage you to stay.

We do it to reduce the amount of scammers. People have tried to take advantage of members in the past and having an a FSOT approval process reduces the instance of people coming directly to the site to scam.

If a person is refusing to ignoring the site rules or even giving the moderation team grief about the FSOT approval process then you have to wonder how they will be if an issue comes up when purchasing from them.

If you see a listing without a FSOT badge please report it.

I know 30 posts seem daunting but we are a chatty bunch and we will reply and help any thread you start move along. We also encourage you to find threads that interest you and post there.
